Buying a Mechanically Damaged 986 Boxster S Sight Unseen From Auction…

♦ We purchased the most inexpensive tidy title 986 in the USA. We bought it from auction where is was noted as having "Mechanical Engine Damage," frightening I know … We choose a first start and drive after it was sitting for ten years! We attempt to repair it cheap in simply a couple hours, but that didn't go to plan. Does it have a blown engine?

  1. Your vids are great and been watching your content for a few years now. I am watching your content from across the pond in the UK and keep up with the great work.

    1. @@JRGarage Can’t wait. Even tho you made 100 of these videos they are exciting every time.

  2. Eeeee, where ya bin bro …… bro with the fro 👌👍
    Ain’t had a notification for 1 of ur videos for time! Have I just been missing them or u not been uploading?
    Nice to see you both again anyway 💪

  3. These videos are great to watch, especially as someone that plans to buy a 987 Cayman at some point in the relatively near future. Shows that doing your own maintenance on a Porsche isn’t as impossible as some people make it out to be, which is relieving and exciting to see.

  4. You’ve still got half a tank of 9 year old varnish filling the fuel tank, plugging the filter, probably trashing the fuel pump AND gumming up the injectors.

    1. @@herrrechtschreibpruefung Good advice is worth it’s weight in gold. Grow up kid. That was a good thing to check. I had a problem with them leaving that fuel in also.

    2. It blows my mind why people try to start vehicles that have been sitting for years. Gasoline has a sealed shelf life of 3 years. High ethanol fuels much less. If the container that the Gasoline is stored in is not completely sealed. The viability drops off substantially after 3 months.

  5. Bad/clogged Injectors can cause a misfire as badly as a coilpack too. That Boxster S seems like a solid track time car candidate 💪🏼

    1. @Yadperformance
      Yes, I haven’t finished this video yet but I’m betting on bad gas still, coil packs or plugs.

  6. Well, I don’t think this went as planned. It’ll be interesting to see what you uncover in the next episode 6 months from now 😂😂😂

    1. seems like they already have it lined up already. And its been fixed as you can see the clip at the end of the video they were red lining it!! lol

    2. Yea that’s on the quicker side of things , more like 8-10 months and that’s if they even put another one out on this car. They’ll probably just put out more videos on more “cheap” boxers and that’ll be the content for the next few years .

  7. Definitely would rather watch multiple cheap Porsche videos. I enjoy your videos when you resurrect neglected cars. I would love to own a Boxster and your videos give me confidence to search for one.

  8. I had cracked fuel lines in the gas tank on a Boxster. These video are always good. You guys know the Boxsters. Great video.

  9. I love these budget boxster videos, I’m washing cars around my neighborhood and flipping go karts and mini bikes, etc. All just to buy one of these, haha

  10. Yeah.. timing.. sounds like mine when the timing chain guide broke.. so one bank skipped a gear.. since it’s cylinder 1 ,3 and 5.. it’s one bank .. the car throw a blinking engine light.. and goes away and come back again.. and exhaust sounded like a Harley, rough on idle, when in gear sometimes it died coz the engine is down in power.. good luck!! I finally got a Boxster watching you guys!! 🔥🔥🔥🔥.. if you test the compression, you will know one side is holding like 30-35%less than the other bank.. hopefully nothing catastrophic..

    1. Plausible. Checking the used engine oil would probably indicate a worn out chain guide. If it sat for a long time with old oil and not driven that could certainly happen. I would expect if it’s out of time though that the engine would self destruct. On my 2000 it was an air oil separator and bad O2 sensor that caused misfires.
      But if I had to put money on it I’d say it’s a bad head gasket on one bank.

  11. Its been so long since the last Boxster video that you now look like Kenny G…lol its all love man. Good to see you guys back@

  12. Guys, you don’t have to remove the bumper you don’t have to remove the wheel. SIMPLY, REMOVE THE FUSE BOX COVER DRIVER SIDE. YOU WILL NOW SEE THE EXPOSED INDIVIDUAL FUSES AND THE PLASTIC FRAME AROUND THE FUSE BOX ITSELF, YOU WILL SEE ABOUT 6 PHILLIPS SCREWS, REMOVE THOSE REMOVE THE FRAME THAT GOES AROUND THE FUSE BOX. AROUND THE UPPER RIGHT YOU WILL SEE WHERE THE CABLE FOR THE FRONT TRUNK RELEASE TRAVELS THROUGH, GRAB A HOLD OF IT AND PULL ON IT, UNTIL YOU HEAR IT CLICK AND OPEN THE FRONT HOOD, THAT’S IT!
